Search for hope and meaning wherever you look: Certainly, you can do this without believing in a god. How about looking at things within the most basic realm of existence? I understand that people who believe will let you down. The bible tells you that. It will also tell you that the war between good and evil positive and negative is NOT against flesh and blood people. Positive and negative influence existed far before us puny humans and our opinions.
If your motive is to prove to people that you can be positive without religion, then how about doing that instead of posting a page called the friendly atheist when by your comments and those by many others not all who post here are anything but?
Your words are mean-spirited, filled with venom and intolerance for those with a different belief system or lack thereof than yours. Or is it simply that you are just trying to prove there is no God? If so, then the best of your atheism is no better than the worst of any other religion.
Those that believe only in what they can see should be able to identify with that. Anna Love, respect, peace, patience, and forgiveness? Elizabeth If you keep researching and seeking, you will find what you need, and that is the most important thing. One thing you will find once you let go of organized religion, is the groundless uncertainty of needing to figure out what YOU need and what YOU believe, apart the the rest of the herd.
It can be a scary time but just remember you are not alone. You are a seeker among seekers. Elizabeth Uh, did you read the original comment? Thin-ice Are you a Christian? Do you believe in heaven and hell? If you do, then you are as bad as Pat Robertson, no matter how friendly and nice and tolerant you are on the surface. If that is the case, then why continue calling yourself a Christian?
Jeff P Religion is a socially acceptable delusion of grandeur. Anyone can join if they believe the right things. What separates the religious delusion of grandeur from the ordinary delusion of grandeur is that the grandeur of religion is deferred until after you die.
There is no accountability or falsification in this life. I think it is quite disingenuous to say that Christianity is any different than any other religion before or since. Christianity differs only in the details of the grandeur and who qualifies. But it is still a delusion of grandeur. Their logic seems to have turned around and bit them in the ass! Matt This is an example of someone who bought religion hook, line and sinker.
He may not be some big loud conservative bible thumper but he has fallen for the delusion.

He has been fully convinced that his religion is somehow completely different than others. We are imperfect creatures who fail and fail again but try to follow Christ example. Not a man made structure for worship. We all are born as impefect creatures, but given the greatest gift…Choice. Athiest choose not to believe, Christians choose to believe.

People are so quick to point out anothers downfalls, shortcomings, etc. Nothing puts that target on you like admitting your a Child of Christ. Like I said, being a Christian is striving to be Christ like. Deeds not words if you will. That there is so much hate is a sad, sad thing.
Thanks to Bob for keeping an eye on things. Curt the earth's magnetic field is generated by convection in the outer core. That would happen regardless of whether the Earth is rotating or not although the earth's rotation does affect the shape of the field, because it affects the pattern of convection. But the Earth keeps right on rotating when the magnetic field goes through one of it's more random phases that's the primary reason why it eventually becomes dipolar like a bar magnet again, although sometimes with the opposite polarity.
Basically, reversals are all about processes that are going on in the core not the rest of the Earth, which really doesn't care what the magnetic field looks like.
Tawny as I say in my post, my theory' is that nothing particularly out of the ordinary is happening, with the die-offs or the magnetic field, whatever the buzz around these events. And whilst our extraction of oil is obviously having significant effects on the earth's atmosphere and oceans they are but a thin veneer on a very very big planet. Our drilling barely scratches the surface. March 4, at 2: Forgive me I only have a passing glance of Obama's START 1 apporach towards nuclear weapons, but would we want to get rid them complete?
At a debate in Britain, David Lange was asked about the peace that we live in cast by the shadow of nuclear weapons, to which he quipped I can almost smell the uranium now!

As witty as he was, he didn't address the issue. At the time U. Certainly a primary reason why they didn't besuace the Allies had a first-strike policy, whereas the U. This cannot be ignored in regards to why they didn't invade, why besuace they would get nuked! My point is that war is due to human nature, it is merely a coercive means to achieving an end, which is no longer practical in its traditional format due to Mutually Assured Destruction. If one considers that humanity has demonstrated its intrinsic peacefulness, reality does not reflect this.
I personally would not advocate the total disarmament of nuclear weapons in the present climate, reduction certainly. But if humanity is so peace why wouldn't we and please remember that the U. Harmony is easy when we are all getting along, but it considered that if we run out of oil then social disorder would ensure. Who knows, this happened in Cuba but choas didn't ensue however Cuba does not hyper-individualistic worldview.
Why is it that Atheists and Theists so slanderous towards each other? I believe that it is human nature. Remember that the brain in a vat experiment is a nice example that shows that what we believe we like to believe is true. If X believes A and Y believes B, and their positions conflict reconciliation of this conflict IS played out one way or another, clearly the degree of saliency of a difference will vary.
Consider, people love to praise the virtue of the golden rule, reap what you say, karma, what goes around comes around and so on, but do unto to others as you would have done unto you, tends to devolve into do unto to others as is done to you. An eye for eye and a tooth for a tooth, WOAH!!! Suggest this and prepare for a lynching, yet isn't this merely a negative expression of doing unto others as you would have done to you though frowned upon besuace there are better ways.
And there are, but when those other ways fail, well Oh a side note to apparently an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth meant no more than an eye for an eye or a tooth for a tooth, which makes it quite logical. I forgot to confirm it with the person who told me, a Philosophy lecturer but it did seem quite convenient, but I keep forgetting to get around to it. Can anyone shed light on this? March 3, at Nevertheless, I sang the hymns, recited various Creeds with the utmost reverence, but without qualifications or introspection.
It was just the way things were… I thought. I am reading the Upanishads… for fun! I find spiritual fulfillment in walking through a park or reading any good book.
Many of the teachings of Jesus still inspire me deeply… far more than the melodramas and tasteless wafers which have followed.
We try to keep it simple, but will encourage them when they get a bit older to explore the faiths of the world and decide for themselves. Keep searching and asking! Notice the stars at night and imagine how vast everything is… listen to the works of the master musicians and read the words of the authors you revere and know that only through questioning and discernment were they able to bring creativity to work.
Most of all, listen to yourself. You speak the truth to you. March 2, at 2: As a christian I struggle having to hear the bad name some people give to other christians. Not only is it annoying a lot of the time but it's also very discouraging. I'm glad that you mention you don't think all christians are haters or judgemental.
I don't ever want to be that way. I'd like to apologize for the people that stray from the true meaning of christianity. I know most of them are ignorant or cruel but some have truly just forgotten God's message and have made it into whatever fits them at the time.
